Meet our Staff
Hi, my name is Debbie Caraway and I am the Director at FPS. I became the assistant director in 2009. I have been in education all my professional life. I started working in childcare in 1977 for a daycare in town. Then moved over to FPS in 1983. I was the preschool teacher for the three’s which was in the Heritage House. I have been a preschool teacher, cook, afterschool van driver and now the assistant director. I was with FPS when we moved into the building we are now in. Looking forward to the future with FPS and the new school.
I left FPS in 1996 to move to Colorado and went to work with KinderCare. My husband worked for United Airlines so that is why we moved. We were there for two years which I loved. Then moved back to Texas to be closer to our parents. So that landed us in Dallas, Texas. I just transferred to another KinderCare and we lived in Mansfield for ten years. My husband decided to retire from the airlines so we moved back to New Braunfels in 2006. The previous director called and asked if I wanted to come back to FPS. I said yes so here I am. We are currently living in the house my husband grew up in. We have been doing a lot of remodeling. So on a personal note I have been married since 1981, to my husband Mike. We have two sons, Steven & Clinton, who are grown up and married. We have two grandsons, Zaine and Cole. Both our grandsons play baseball. They play for the Texas Bombers in San Marcos, which means they play everywhere. I love spending time with my family and we do a lot of family outings. Camping (in a RV), fishing, we have a fishing boat stored in Rockport. That is our favorite place to go on weekends. In our spare time my husband and I travel. Our second favorite place is Jamaica. We have been there twice and love it. Plan on going every year! I am currently going for my CDA with some other FPS staff. I have many training hours in childcare, I received 2012 Teacher Award.
I truly love my job and the people I work for and with. My job is keep your children safe and make sure they have the appropriate learning tools. The second most important factor is the families at FPS. I want to thank the families for leaving your precious gift with us. Children are our future!
